NEWBIE Q: How do I go about desoldering speaker wire from the tabs on a speaker? The speaker cable is soldered on to the speaker tabs and I want to remove said wire from said speaker. I looked online for the Radio Shack desoldering tool and it just looks like a heat sink and some scraping tools.... It seems like you would just heat up the soldered connection until it melts and then carefully remove the speaker wire. Try to wipe off the EXTREMELY hot solder and then scrape off the rest???? Please save me from 3rd degree burns!
